THE 2017 WEDŪ HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Hincapie PowerCore Merino Baselayer

When it comes to riding in the cold, you need to be warm or that ride is going to be a short one. It all starts with the proper apparel. As many of you know, my good buddy (and rider of all seven Tours with me) George Hincapie and his brother Rich started an athletic apparel company. They have been cranking away since GH retired from the sport. Check out their site for this wool-blend, sweat-wicking baselayer ($70) and other great products from George and the crew.

Friends of WEDŪ,

Registration for the 2018 WEDŪ TEXAS HŪNDRED is here.

We’ve kept the best parts of this hundred-miler—a beautiful course that tours the ranches and wide-open spaces of the central Texas Hill Country, and a rocking after-party—but changed up the date to Spring so you can experience ideal riding conditions (and our famous Bluebonnets in bloom).

This isn’t your common century—the HŪNDRED was designed to satisfy a healthy appetite for adventure on two wheels. You’ll encounter sweeping landscapes and some local wildlife, including zebras, ostriches, llamas and longhorns. And there’s a pretty mellow four-mile gravel stretch to keep things interesting.

The ride area, including the start and finish location at Reveille Peak Ranch (less than an hour’s drive from Austin), offers many activities to entertain your friends and family while you’re out on the bike, including fishing, hiking and mountain biking. Your crew is also welcome at our after-party, which will have some great live music.

Come join us for one of the best rides in Texas,...
